Need help with open-iscsi under OpenVZ
I'm trying to set up a iSCSI connection between two VPS-es (the storage box VPS by @Prometeus @Maounique). I've finished setting up the target, however now I'm at the point of setting up the initiator and I'm puzzled.
The OS is Debian 6 32-bit in OpenVZ container. Just after installing open-iscsi when I try to start
iscsid -f I have the following error:
iscsid: Missing or Invalid version from /sys/module/scsi_transport_iscsi/version. Make sure a up to date scsi_transport_iscsi module is loaded and a up todate version of iscsid is running. Exiting...
I tried googling this problem and it seems to me that I need to recompile the kernel with this
scsi_transport_iscsi module. Also, as far as I know, I cannot change the kernel in OpenVZ.
Is it really the case? I mean that the only way to have iSCSI with OpenVZ is if the kernel is supporting it, but you cannot change the kernel? What can I do now?
1. Ask Prometeus to re-compile the host-kernel on my node?
2. Ask Prometeus to move me to a KVM node?
3. Or I'm understanding something wrong?
